Welcome to the Riveters Podcast! Join Sally Smith and Buffy Wicks as they introduce their podcast and discuss the inspiration behind creating this ode to modern womanhood. We are joined by stellar guests like Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards, Center for American Progress’ Neera Tanden, Congresswoman Ann Kuster, Olympian Brianna Scurry, Senator Tammy Baldwin, Oscar-winner Patricia Arquette, and many other leaders who share their lives, careers, and what’s made them who they are today.
The Riveters takes you inside the West Wing with six amazing interviews with badass women who are leading this country. We hear from leaders like Jen Psaki, the White House Communications Director, Tina Tchen, Michelle Obama’s Chief of Staff, Valerie Jarrett — who needs no introduction, and many more.
Join us in our second season where we dig deeper into leadership, purpose, politics, womanhood, motherhood — you name it. We are joined by leaders like Anne-Marie Slaughter from the New America Foundation, Sara McBride from the Human Rights Campaign, Lisa Jackson from Apple, and many other exemplary women leaders.
We bring you behind the scenes of the Hillary Clinton campaign and talk to the women behind the woman. We speak to women from all parts of the campaign, ranging from Hillary’s photographer, the woman leading opposition research against Trump, the Latino vote director — all the way to her original staffers from Bill’s first campaign way back in the day in Arkansas. Join us to get the real scoop of the inner workings of making her-story.
